It’s a ho-ho-ho set to
go-go-go: send your caroling request to the Koster clan asap!
By Blurt Staff
Once again, Julian Koster and his Singing Saw will come to
your house to bring songs, stories, and good cheer to you and your friends –
all you have to do is invite them.
Julian introduced the world to the wonderful holiday
traditions of his friends, The Singing Saws, last year with The Singing Saw
at Christmastime. This bizarre and beautiful album and it’s accompanying
glimpse into Julian’s vivid imagination has become an instant holiday classic.
If you have not yet heard The Singing Saw at Christmastime, please
let me know. A video of Julian and his Saw playing “Santa Claus is
Coming to Town” and a downloadable MP3 can be found here.
You may invite the carolers to visit your house by emailing email@example.com or by mailing a handwritten letter to 450 N. Harris St. Athens, GA
30601 (due to time constraints, please send an email to let the
“caroling ambassador” know you are sending a letter).
Be sure to include an email address or telephone number for
reply. Invitations where the hosts indicate that they would be willing to
entertain outside guests on caroling night are preferred. Please note your
permission to invite others from the area to your house and whether you can
offer the carolers a place to sleep in your letter or email.
Once the limit on houses on a given night has been reached,
the address of each house that will welcome guests will be distributed via
email to all who email firstname.lastname@example.org and
ask to attend. The addresses of the houses will not be posted online.
